Reader reviews

  • (4/5)
    This book was important for me because it inspired me when I was becoming a coach. It also reinforces the important lessons about the importance of discipline in becoming successful.
  • (5/5)
    Wonderful! Very practical, and useful, personally applicable.
  • (4/5)
    Great book with valuable, motivating info. A little heavy on the case studies, but otherwise very helpful.
  • (3/5)
    Good information on becoming a successful person. Covey covers habits that can help anyone in either their personal or professional life. The only issues I have with the book is the use of metaphors, anecdotes, and the over-all verbosity. I would have appreciate the book more as a tool if he had kept it simple.
  • (4/5)
    The seven habits are universal and applicable not only at work, but also at home. They deserve reading and re-reading year after year. The only problem I have with the author is that some of the stories told are simply too neat and perfect, and they leave the reader feeling just a bit as if they are being talked down to. The whole "clean and green" story just seems to have been enhanced, and is told with such extreme detail you simply want it to end.
  • (4/5)
    Excellent book which really makes you feel positive and like you can become a better, more organised and happier person.
